Tai Sui

Introduction

Tai Sui, also known as Lord of Tai Sui, refers to the star “Jupiter”. Since Jupiter  revolves once every twelve months , ancient people called it “Tai Sui” or “Lord of Tai Sui”. Tai Sui  not only refers to a star but also to a God. As people believed that celestial objects governed the Earth so they deified Tai Sui as a God or a celestial governor. Ancient people had divided the sky into twelve equal parts since Qin and Han Dynasties, and they believed that wherever Tai Sui located, there must be   diseases and disasters. So people  avoided to build, construct, move (to move huge objects such as furniture, or to immigrate) and get married at the place where Tai Sui was . And later people started to personify Tai Sui and even brought him into the national ritual as a worship idol during Yuan and Ming Dynasty. People believed that  if they worshipped Tai Sui regularly  fortune would be brought into the country and to the citizens.
